Thought I would start a thread for a specific surgery date. Sometimes the threads get too long to navigate.

Hi Kay07! Are you excited? Nervous? My doc asked me those questions and I said with all honesty “No, I feel prepared and determined” but in the quiet of the night when I have trouble sleeping, I scroll through these posts and do get a bit nervous. I’m having trouble adjusting to my preop diet. I have to admit I miss my nightly glass of red wine.

Another May 14th checking in. I miss my dark chocolate but I have to admit that I’m really not that hungry anymore. I just wish I had more energy. Less than 900 calories a day is taking it’s toll.

Not nervous at all yet. I am sure I will be as it draws closer, but I’m so committed it feels more like a relief than anything else.

I’ve been on a low cal low carb diet for a few months now in preparation of this, and can’t say I miss things all that much? I have been having so much fun experimenting with new recipes so maybe it’s kept my mind off it.

Although I do miss wine!

I've created a secret Facebook group for May sleevers. In order for it to be secret I can only add "friends" or I can add people using their email. So if you are interested you can either post your email or DM me with it. https://www.facebook.com/groups/210152776255190/

Another suggestion was to change the group name and make it closed so that it is searchable, then once members have joined change it to secret. I am just not comfortable with the world knowing about my surgery.

      NSV today. I have been wearing my size 26 jeans which have been getting roomy. So today I decided to try on my size 24 Lane Bryant jeans and see if I could get into them. Not only can I get into them, they are also loose. That made me feel super happy this morning. Weight is still 243 but the inches are definitely moving.

      Tried a few bites of pasta (protein-enriched penne) tonight. No foamies or anything, but didn't sit well. I'm sad about it, but at least now I know and can move on to trying other things, maybe revisit it when I'm further out.

      This is going to sound really freaking weird but I feel like I am in the twilight zone ... like this is all a bad dream I am going (or hoping) to wake up from. I hate food! I mean I fscking hate it! It tastes like saw dust ... I am never hungry and never have a desire to eat. Eating hurts and no one knows really WTF is going on. I mean they think the cause of this is the stomach ulcer but what if all this stuff heals up and I am still messed up? I am down 60 pounds and almost 6" from my heaviest but I could care less. I sleep but it feels like I get none at all. When I wake up even though my stupid CPAP says, "Hey dumbass! You had less than 1 apnea an hour. GTFU!" It's supposed to be really easy to find work because unemployment is low, yet I keep getting turned down for work. At this point, I am like what next?

      My surgery is May 30, 2018 and I can not take this 2 weeks pre-op liquid, very hard and my shakes that I got from my doctors office has a funny taste.  What kind of shakes are you drinking for pre op

        I have the Premier Protein Water which I still have to water down to be able to stomach it. I would rather be on full clear liquid (which starts tomorrow!)
